In search of your new favorite yoga pants? You know the ones — you’d rather not leave the house if you have to take them off.
Alo Yoga is a personal favorite of mine. I’ve got plenty of pairs in my workout drawer. They create quality products that last and provide comfort during your workout or yoga session. I personally love their Goddess Ribbed Leggings. I like that they function as yoga pants and leg warmers alike, you can tuck them underneath your heels if you’re barefoot and want more coverage. Alo Yoga was founded in 2007 in Los Angeles in hopes of creating a line that is “perfect as a street brand, comfortable, contemporary, and decidedly not just for the mat”. They have done just that. For a simple legging, I really enjoy their High Waist Airbrush Legging. These leggings are great for women of all sizes, they also have a men’s line as well. As far as sizing, Alo does a great job of having a size for everyone. For 00-0 an XXS is your best fit, from there a 2-4 is a xsmall, 4-6 is a small, 8-10 is medium, 12-14 large, and 16-18 is XL. We love that there’s something for everyone because after all, we’re all beautiful and deserve to have an amazing pair of yoga pants.
My all time favorite yoga brand right now. They share that their company is a “performance-first lifestyle brand committed to creating technically innovative, fashion forward apparel for the modern woman”. The materials Varley uses are absolutely incredible; they are breathable, stretchy, and come in so many fun patterns. I am a big fan of their muted, snake skin prints like on these Kensington tights! They also have a lot of fun cut out leggings that I really like as well — check out the Sycamore tight in Burgundy. Personally, this brand works great for my body type as a very petite person. I always have a hard time finding leggings that aren’t baggy on my legs and Varley gives me the very close fit feel I am looking for. Varley’s sizing is a bit more limited and their leggings provide a snug fit so if you’re in between sizes, size up. 0-2 is an xxsmall, 2-4 xsmall, 4-6 small, 6-8 medium, and 8-10 large.
ALALA is another brand that offers incredible yoga pants and leggings. ALALA is “a luxury women’s activewear brand with a sophisticated downtown attitude that was created for precisely the way we live today.” They share that their line is created for women on the go who “demand both the best in fashion and function from your gear.” We’re in love with these ultra soft leggings that provide both style and fit for the modern woman on the go. Try out their super comfortable seamless leggings with their seamless layer bra. If you’re feeling more fun, throw on a pair of the performance leggings in a fun print to spice things up! These leggings are always a go to for me; the material has a nice thickness that provides both shape and support while you’re wearing them. If you’re in between sizes, size down. For sizing a 0-2 is an XS, 4-6 is a Small, 8-10 is a medium, 12 is a large, and 14 is an XL. These leggings tend to run a bit larger than other yoga brands in my personal experience; they provide nice comfort and style for your workout and daily errands.
Beyond Yoga is another favorite of ours — they are all about encouraging you to live your most balanced life. One of the cornerstones of their brand is embracing beauty in all shapes and sizes. They never retouch models and offer sizes XXS to 3X. They truly believe that everyone deserves to partake in quality products and live their best lives. They do a great job incorporating both function and fashion into their pieces and have a lot of very fun pieces. Right now, I am really loving Beyond Yoga’s high waisted angled midi leggings. The leggings are so soft… you’re never going to want to take them off. The Beyond Yoga Women’s Compression Lux High Waist Midi Leggings are a great basic to incorporate into your wardrobe.
Onzie is all about your body and having respect for it. They create special workout clothing that integrates fun prints and patters as well as comfort. Mix up your workout outfit with Onzie’s High Rise Leopard Leggings or integrate some pattern with their Graphic Leggings. Onzie’s sizing is a little different than other yoga brands. A 0-2 is an X/S, 2-6 is a S/M, 6-8 M/L, 10-12 is L/L, and 14-16 is XL. This brand is definitely more inclusive than other workout brands and works to make comfortable clothing for all body types. This brand definitely runs large so if you’re very petite, this brand might not be as great for your body type or if you’re in between sizes, we’d recommend sizing down.
Beach Riot has so many fun, loud workout leggings that really add a fun twist to your workout outfits. Wearing black leggings to the gym can get old; Beach Riot brings lots of pattern and color into their workout clothing. They explain that the “Beach Riot babe is a new wave feminist; a stunning rebel who lives life to the fullest and colors outside the lines. A boss babe by day and a party rioter by night the BR Babe has it all. Her style is modern and unapologetically bold, yet always effortlessly chic.” Their leggings definitely fit into this lifestyle. Try out their fun Sport Lacy Leggings in White and their Sport Jess Top.
